    Ok ok - if you aren't going by quality of music videos here's another key. Wear Affliction t-shirts, talk a lot of shite, and engage in shoving matches at the bar. Then folks will know not to mess with you. If you really want to be taken seriously show up at an MMA club every month or two and learn to strut.

        One thing that I am very fortunate in is that my employer conducts regular krav maga training, which features grappling, ground fighting, firearms takeaways and retention among other things. I enjoy the balance between art and practicality. In the much deeper meaning of training (and to use a Zen-ism) at the higher levels of learning, they are one in the same. It's sort of "wax on, wax off." Do a kata enough and with the right meaning and it becomes part of you and not just a series of moves.
        The thing that took my kata to the next level, which is pretty abysmal still, is realizing that my coach is on the grading board and will be one of the judges at every kata competition I enter. Mistakes will be met with the most performance enhancing skills of a coach. Stern looks and silence.
